I wouldn't think so because it's literally only when eating. And the
squeak toy noise was replaced with these sneezing
/gagging fits. He NEVER did this the
entire time we had him, and we haven't changed anything..food, bedding. We only tried a bedding change after the squeaking started.
I can't remember his breed at the moment. When my daughter wakes up, I'll post that info in case it helps. Thanks a million for any ideas you can offer! I'm stumped!!
